Uniting for life: World Water Day

March 22 is World Water Day. This is a day when we raise the urgent issue of a global problem - water scarcity.


Statistics:

●      2.2 billion people do not have access to safe drinking water.

●      4.5 billion people experience water scarcity at least one month a year.

●      By 2050, water scarcity could affect up to 5.7 billion people.


Causes:

●      Climate change: droughts, floods, depletion of water bodies.

●      Pollution: industrial and domestic wastewater, agricultural fertilizers.

●      Irrational use: overconsumption of water in agriculture, industry, and households.


What to do?


The global society is already taking action:

●      In 2015, UN countries adopted Sustainable Development Goal 6 (SDG 6): ensure universal access to clean water and sanitation by 2030.

●      The UN coordinates the efforts of various international organizations, governments, non-profit organizations, and the private sector to preserve water resources.

●      Various programs are being implemented: construction of new water treatment facilities, introduction of water-saving technologies, raising awareness among the population about the importance of careful water use.


Each of us can contribute:

●      Do not waste water.

●      Use water-saving attachments and appliances.

●      Support environmental initiatives.

●      Spread information about the problem of water scarcity and ways to solve it.
